Notes on Creation is a collection of thoughts and advice on the creative process, gathered from the minds of a diverse range of artists from contemporary circus and performing arts: thinkers, makers, movers, teachers, performers, academics, clowns, choreographers, directors, producers and more.

Oli Pinchbeck and Declan Mee interviewed more than 30 artists on a wide range of subjects related to contemporary performing arts – subjects covered include: Research, Inspiration, Music, Directing, Nudity, Group Work, Dramaturgy, Life As An Artist, Teaching and many more.

The book is presented subject-by-subject and question-by-question, with the artists’ contributions displayed in a bite-sized and conversational style. Easy to dip in to just for inspiration, to dive into a specific topic, or to sit down and read from cover to cover.
